The IRCA Business Continuity Management System Auditor Certification Scheme is for auditors who use ISO 22301.

To be certificated to this scheme, you'll need to demonstrate that you have the skills to audit the proper implementation of ISO 22301.

Business continuity management systems (BCMS) and business continuity planning are crucial to small and large organisations in all sectors – now more than ever. Every organisation can be affected by a disruption of business operations, which in the worst case can be fatal for the organisation and lead to bankruptcy. ISO 22301 helps organisations minimise the risk of disruptions to operations because of major or minor incidents.

The purpose of our BCMS Auditor Certification Scheme is to provide confidence that auditors certified to this scheme are competent.

The IRCA BCMS Auditor Certification Scheme has been developed in partnership with the Business Continuity Institute (BCI), in response to the demand for competent auditors of BCMS's.
